So sorry to hear this.. I only got to meet him a couple of times, the thing I remember most is he was always smilling.
I had the pleasure of having Deon as a Ground Flight Instructor at Midland College. His knowledge of aviation and his desire to help the students was truly appreciated by all. He will be missed.
What a wonderful caring and giving man.
My prayers and thoughts are with you, Diana, and the rest of the family. I wish you two would have had more time in Deon's retirement. Cherish the memories.
I am so very sorry for his untimely death.
My prayers continue for you in the days ahead.
Deon was my instrument flight instructor and friend. He had so many fine qualities but I particularly admired his special teaching abilities, his abundance of patience, and his way of inspiring me to always do better and learn more. Deon was a kind and gentle man with a quick smile and sharp wit. Like so many others, I will truly miss him and his friendship.
